Thumb Page Holder
This was a fun little project. My fiance loves to read, and this allows you to hold a book open with one hand.
What you will need
I had a 1x6 of oak, but whatever would work.
How to do this project
I used a hand saw to rip the 1x6 to a, I guess, .5x6. Hand planed it smooth and even. Cut the the piece into a triangle. Drilled the hole with drill press. Then carved the desired shape with a combo of a chisel and sander. Sanded it smooth, and applied some finish, sand again and done. (In hindsight, I would make the wing angle a little lower, to be more diamond shaped. The higher angle let's the pages open more than might be desired.)
